Serier – Sida EvaluationDescription:
The report concludes that CODESRIA conducts high quality research relevant for development and undertakes important capacity building work in the social sciences. The report highlights the importance of CODESRIA's thematic research networks that transcend disciplinary, geographical and linguistic boundaries in challenging fragmentation and promote an autonomous pan-African perspective. The report also concludes that the organisation is efficient and the process of initiating, reviewing and assessing research proposals and manuscripts is professional and transparent. The report recommends improvements in the area of publication and dissemination and increased decentralisation.
